Description
Ken Shenstone has built one of the largest anagama kilns in the U.S. It measures 1,000 cubic feet.

Anagama are wood-burning, so the artist has less control over the results of his ceramics. As Shenstone says in his artist statement: “Though not random, surfaces and even changes to the form are unpredictable. The best results are often unplanned.”

The kiln was constructed of industrial hard brick reclaimed from a steel foundry. The front of the kiln is an ovular dome inspired by the industrial design of a furnace in the foundry, while the tail of the kiln is an arch, derived from the shape of Japanese cave kilns built into the sides of hills.
